This one is a little odd. My friend Greg Scott did the soundtrack for my short film penisknifevaginawound which played at the Chicago Underground Film Festival in 1997. Greg and I rented a car and drove to Pittsburgh for 8 hours to catch the hour-long Whitehouse show and say hi to people in ’95.
Do people really just go just like that? Just *poof* and they’re gone? I don’t think he did drugs.
Weird. I just found out 10 minutes ago or else I’d figure out how to get to the service tomorrow. It’s in 8 hours. Bummin. I’ll have to call his mom.
